Final call for Anthony Joshua glove

By Mark Andrews | Shrewsbury | Boxing | Published:

Time is running out to stake your claim for this superb boxing glove signed by world champion Anthony Joshua – with just two days to go to the charity auction.

The glove is the latest piece of sporting memorabilia being put up for auction by Shropshire's own former world champ Richie Woodhall to raise money for cancer charities in the county.

All proceeds from this week's sale will go towards the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Support group, which is raising money for a new biopsy machine at Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.

If you want to bid online for the glove, you will need to register by tomorrow at the latest on although you can still bid in person on Wednesday, or leave an absentee bid with the auctioneer.

Richie, from Telford, is organising the auctions in memory of his father Len, who died from prostate cancer in 2015.

He said he was extremely impressed by the tireless work of the volunteers for Pink Ribbon, and said Joshua was delighted to be able to help.

He said interest in the gloves was likely to be boosted by Joshua's successful defence of his IBF and WBA world heavyweight titles last month, which leave him as the undisputed king of world boxing.

The auction, at Halls in Bowmen Way, Battlefield, Shrewsbury, starts at 10am on Wednesday.

The glove can be viewed tomorrow, or from 9am on Wednesday.

To place an absentee bid simply telephone 01743 450700.
